2IC Partner

If you are a multi-tasker, take pride in building relationships and are keen to organize projects this might be for you. Our team is looking for a 2IC (second-in-command) individual who excels at building and maintaining corporate relationships while managing various programs and event initiatives. The role is best suited to a self-motivated dynamo keen to help lead a 40 year old business in new directions. In the role of 2IC you would work directly with the senior partner on managing daily operations with an emphasis on building out new initiatives. With the freedom of working from your home office you will work remotely with other team members to create and manage new projects, corporate sales & marketing, and project management to meet the company's aggressive goals so you will need to be sharp. And if you have ambitions to be a "partner" in a company with a vision to support & grow Atlantic Canada's startup community then we have even more to talk about.
